Hopewell DE Darrell Taylor

Hopewell (VA) senior defensive end Darrell Taylor will announce his college choice this evening at halftime of the Blue Devils’ homecoming contest against Thomas Dale. Kickoff is 7:30 pm, so the announcement should come around 8:30 or so. TSL will be on hand for the decision.

Once considered the favorite for the 6’4″, 227-pound prospect, there are rumblings on Virginia Tech’s 247Sports site that Taylor may be headed out-of-state. Blue Devils head coach Ricky Irby indicated earlier this month that his standout athlete was down to Florida, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech. He has not visited Florida or South Carolina, though, and in fact cancelled a scheduled trip to Gainesville earlier this month.
